that they are not that far away, he cited a chart in "the new york times" the charts were similar. this is a "you should take the deal" press conference, and you're right, the president knew if he opened up the questions, he would get a fiscal cliff question. one of the things i was struck by was it was very clear the president was going to keep taking questions until he got another question on guns. he just kind of kept, okay, i'll take one more, one more, so it was a dual-purposed press conference, both to announce this gun control commission, although the president isn't calling it a commission being led by joe biden, but also kind of get himself get where he believes the fiscal cliff is and where it needs to go, at least rhetorically get himself out on both those things, and he did it. that's the power of the presidency. >> the other question is at the end, until then, all the questions were about the fiscal cliff and no follow-up questions about what exactly policies, what policies are going to be part of this gun task force. >> and that -- what's hard on this, andrea, that's the difficult thing, and i

them back to new york. >> places like philadelphia. >> you look at murders across the tri-state area, so many come from virginia in that gun show loophole. bob mcdonald said we need more guns and give teachers guns. you know what? before you arm more people, look at the gun shows in virginia that, again, allow trafficking of these illegal arms up here. i mean, that they are bought legally and end up in the wrong hands. >> they close it after jim's report and mayor bloomberg is doing his own undercover work on this. >> that's one way we show we're not totally serious about cracking down on guns. another one is to say that connecticut is tough on guns, which a lot of people have said in the last few days, and they are by the standards we have. the fifth toughest according to the brady campaign. you can get any number of automatic rifles. you can have a grenade launcher attachment on these. it's not really tough on guns but by the standards we have. >> tough by the standards we have, which are very low. this slippery slope argument you can make on everything. if the tsa can frisk me at

bolling, dana perino. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ so in times of tragedy, i know that opinions or facts don't help the suffering. saying gun violence dropped over 40 years or schools are safer than ever, that means very it will to people in shock. it's just noise. to me, it's like gun free zones. it sounds great but only in media who works in gun protected zones. fort hood, the dead weren't children but they were warriors, killed in a gun free zone in army base. you think the coward hasan didn't know that. evil seeks the vulnerable. so why can't a school be protected as 30 rock? is a talking head more valuable than a child? what do i know? i'm a talking head. i know nothing. as rare as the horrible events are, evil will always be. addressing mental health issues help, as we feel as the evil. each creep has the same m.o. but we report it like it's new. maybe it's time to ponder instead of pontificate. nobody is listening. they heard it before. tragically, we hear it all again. so this seems like we repsychothe same argument when this happens. is it going to be us v
